    I just waited for about an hour

    for someone I love to answer me and he texted back with only a " :) " Actually I cried for days after that.

    10 hours to reply is not acceptable!

    Especially when I know his phone is constantly in his hand. So fu@k you! I might reply back tomorrow if I'm feeling nice.

    Honestly, I hate these stupid

    and crazy texting games people play. All these so called "rules" about communication ... how to reply, how you "should" reply, when to reply, what to reply to. Why can't people just be real ??Whats wrong with a simple reply...it doesnt take more than 3 seconds to say a simple...

    OMG my biggest pet peeve is texting someone

    and them not texting you back and you know they have looked at it. or the fact that when you are with them they always have their phone in their hand. that crap does not change when I'm not with them. grow a pair of balls and say I don't want to talk right now

    What's worse is when it's my boyfriends

    daughters birthday and her mother doesn't bother calling back or texting. Probably lying to the little girl on her eighth birthday and saying daddy didn't call, daddy doesn't care. I HATE how powerless I am. I want to write her on Facebook and ask what's going on, why she'd...

    Sending a text/message then getting ignored is

    the worst thing ever. It's like you annoy them and that they don't want to speak to you. It happens to me all the time..😒

    I have this one friend

    that sometimes takes a few days to text me back. There have been a couple of times where she said that she was too busy so she couldn't text me back. I understand being busy because I'm busy too with a job and studying for this exam. What I don't understand is how she's too busy...

    You're writing and then suddenly BAM they're

    gone. Did thy die? No. They just left. How many people would do that if they were standing in front of you? Almost none. Yet it happens in texting all the time.

    I hate one worded answers

    and slow replies. But not texting back at all? That makes me crazy! At least lie and say your phone is dying or you'll talk to me later or something!

    It's awkward when you have to send a lot of

    Like I get it if you don't want to talk to me,

    but dont leave my messages unanswered for days. Tell me whats up and trust me you wont find me in your messages again. The thing that gets to me the most is when you know they are online like are you serious?!?

    I met a few people on EP.

    We txt or email, but after awhile they just stop. Then I have to see post on here about how they don't have anyone to talk to. But when I txt you, you never txt back. Unless I'm just that boring, who knows? There is nothing boring about me asking you, if you're okay or how...

    Honestly I don't even know anymore.

    My ex after 3 months of being broken up, 2 months of not texting or facetiming (long distance relationship) he comes back, last Saturday, saying "I wanna make this right, I was wondering if you wanna be friends." I talked to him a little bit on Saturday asking him why, he said...

    I understand people don't live their lives

    surgically attached to their phones or computers, but it just seems like good manners to me to just reply to someone and say you are busy instead of just not replying. I always seem to be on the receiving end of the lack of reply. I'm probably over sensitive but it makes me...
